Selecting Window Fashions for a Scullery

No matter the room the window is in, we usually suggest that it’s best to treat that window, especially to help with UV protection, privacy and light control, and more. At F&R Interiors serving the greater Los Angeles area, we’ve had more and more customers ask if they should get a treatment for their scullery. At first we were surprised about that—weren’t sculleries something from Victorian England? But now we’re seeing that they’re regaining popularity and many new builds and remodels are including the useful room. So we’ve put together some thoughts on how to address some of the goals people have for treating a window in a scullery. Read on below!

Modern Aesthetics

Roman shades lend a touch of class and elegance to any space, combining the softness of drapery with crisp, clean folds. Especially in sculleries that are all white, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades add a hint of pizzazz through color, pattern, and texture.

A Way to Soften Harsh Light

Sheers can soften light (which is especially important with west- and south-facing windows) entering the space and leave the room with a welcoming glow. Silhouette® Window Shadings are designed with a Signature S-Vane™ that appears to float between two sheers.

UV Ray Protection

Pirouette® Window Shadings offer beautifully contoured fabric vanes attached to a sheer backing. They help block harmful UV rays, which can damage your scullery’s cabinetry, counters, and flooring.

Easy Maintenance and Longevity

For sculleries with high moisture, a great option is aluminum or faux wood blinds, like Hunter Douglas Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds or Modern Precious® Aluminum Blinds. They never go out of style, can be cleaned fairly easily, and are a good value.

Lift Systems

Hunter Douglas offers a variety of lift systems, from standard manual operations to motorized systems. They all offer pet and child safety, and some offer more. UltraGlide® is a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords. LiteRise® is a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with slight pressure from your hand. PowerView® Automation is a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet, even if you’re not at home.
